A new integration of GPS vehicle tracking and fuel card reporting is now being offered by FleetMatics.
The company said its FleetMatics Fuel Card Reports software combines the FleetMatics’ vehicle-tracking applications with fuel-card reporting to help users reduce fuel usage, track mpg, identify fuel card non-compliance, and correct fuel-wasting driving behaviors. It will also monitor a fleet’s carbon footprint.
“This new software enhancement further demonstrates our commitment to offering clients breakthrough technological solutions that translate into direct cost savings for our customers,” said Jim Travers, FleetMatics CEO. “By integrating fuel card usage into our robust GPS tracking software, fleet managers will now have complete visibility over their fuel spend. They can effectively leverage their transaction information to take proactive actions that will reduce costs at the pump and benefit the environment.”
With the reporting tool, managers can receive detailed fuel-card transaction data along with location and time-stamps from GPS to accurately track all transactions and consumption.
The software also tracks mpg of each vehicle and informs managers when a particular vehicle exceeds the company benchmark. It also tracks fuel-card usage and will send notification if a card is used to fuel the wrong vehicle, the fueling cost exceeds actual fuel capacity of the vehicle, or the card is used at an unauthorized location.
In addition, the reports track the carbon footprint of vehicles.
“Volatile fuel prices and a sluggish economy have especially hurt companies that rely on vehicle fleets to do business,” said Travers. “Our Fuel Card Reports provide the tangible benefits that our customers have come to expect from us to help get them through today’s challenging business environment.”
